The Friendship Project

Women’s Lenten Small Groups
Thursdays During Lent

Do you want your friendships to be deeper and more meaningful than Facebook “likes”? Are you looking for a community of companions to create true spiritual bonds?

Join other women from SMA for a Lenten, small group book discussion and faith sharing group. Women will meet at the parish each Thursday evening during Lent at the parish to discuss the book “The Friendship Project: The Catholic Woman’s Guide to Making and Keeping Fabulous, Faith-Filled Friends”.  Focusing on faith, hope, love, prudence, gratitude, loyalty, generosity, and prayerfulness, the authors help us answer questions such as, “What does it mean to be women of hope, and how does that change our lives and make us more compassionate friends during difficult times?” and “How does prayerfulness teach us how to listen to and talk with both God and our friends, which helps us reach out to those we love?”

Interested women should email Alli at  for more information and to join the small group.
